Can't change language of Kleopatra
Open, NormalPublic


have just installed gpg4win on a German PC and told it to use US English as main language. Figured it would be easier to get help that way. Unfortunately, Kleopatra speaks German now and I can't convince her to change that in Help/Change language. She acts as she would change but doesn't. Reboot didn't help. What am I missing?


3.1.3-gpg4win-3.1.4 5.43.0, Gpg4win

As for getting Help, we all speak German ;-P

It's suprising though that it does not change the language. There is a bug that after switching the language some buttons will still be in the system languate (as their captions are taken from the system) but in general it should change.

It is possible though that some environment variables overwrite the language selected in the config dialog.

Can you please open a command line (cmd.exe) and enter "set" and there look for variables: "LANG" "LANGUAGE" or variables starting with "LC_" if there are such variables set they could overwrite the setting.

Hi, I have the same problem, in Italian Language becouse this is the system language!
Kleopatra 3.1.15 on Windows 10

still actual problem (Gpg4win-3.1.15, Windows 10)

in my case, english and russian languages mixed, even if i set primary language (in both windows and kleopatra) to english.
tried to add environment variable "LANGUAGE" to "en_us"

there is also problem with encoding in context menu items
